If thou shalt perfectly observe these rules, all the followingSymbols (i.e., Magick Squares) and an infinitude of others will be granted unto thee by the Holy Guardian Angel; thou thus living for the Honour and Glory of the True and only God, for thine own good, and that of thy neighbors.
Let the Fear of God be ever before the eyes and the heart of him who shall possess this Divine Wisdom and Sacred Magic.

When used for meditation, each letter represents a force. The nature and relational positions of each letter one to another, in each square, comprise a statement describing an important part of your magical universe. Such magical statements often lose their power when put into words or when they are logically defined by the rational mind. The meanings of the Enochian letters are shown in Table II.
In meditation, let your mind wander through the letters of a square. Note the occult relationships and correspondences as you move among the letters but do not even try to put your observations into words until after the meditation.
As an example, meditate on the square of ROR You will see that the square contains only three different letters:
R-Moon in Pisces O--- Justice in
An overview will show you that as the Empress connects the masculine, CHOKMAH with the feminine, BINAH on the Qabalistic Tree of Life (see Figure 19 in Enochian Magic), so the letter D connects the masculine letter 0 with the feminine letter R. A strong sense of justice pervades this square. It is interesting to note that the letter R, which occurs in all four corners, is the letter of the moon although the overall square is for the solar current (ROR is the Enochian word for the sun). Thus the sun has the moon within it, just as the moon square of GRAA contains references to the sun within it. This reflects the occult maxim that every truth contains its opposite within it.
Another view of the square of ROR will show Spirit (D) within equal areas of Air (0) and Water (R). This suggests the creative emergence of consciousness from its unconscious Source. This scenario is symbolized in nature by the rising sun, and in Magick by the scarab or beetle-headed god of the Egyptians, Khepera. Further reflection on this square will yield additional solar correspondences. As an exercise, you should meditate on all of the Magick Squares in this manual.
